Forwarded on behalf of Robyn Stutchbury:

Perhaps the underlying problem has not being given due consideration. It 
seems to be a matter of lack of professionalism and that in turn is a 
matter of poor training during undergraduate and postgraduate studies. 
Science communication skills should be a compulsory component of course 
work for all considering a career science. It is not difficult to 
determine a comfortable number of spoken words per minute and apply this 
to a few key points in a list of essential topics.  The topics can then 
be given time allocation which can be quickly checked by a timer on the 
speaker's lectern. A brief rehearsal will quickly determine what 
amendments must be made to meet the time constraints.
